Our Youth Pastor
Pastor Luke comes to us all the way from Omaha, NE with a few stops along the way. After growing up in Omaha, Luke moved to Chicago where he attended Moody Bible Institute, earning a bachelor’s in youth ministry and Bible. While in Chicago he also joined the youth staff of The Moody Church, where he ministered as a part of the youth staff from 2003 to 2007. Luke then began work on a Master’s of Divinty at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School but sensed God leading him in a new direction—one that carried him all the way to sunny California and accepted the call to be the High School Pastor at Sunrise Church in Rialto until coming up to join forces with us here in Big Bear.
While not exactly a mountain man (he is known for his love of wearing his sandals and shorts until the risk of frostbite is just too great), he has come to enjoy the tightknit community of Big Bear inspite of the 3 feet of snow that fell the month after he moved here. And while that snow puts a damper on his love affair with flip flops, it hasn’t been able to get in the way of his love of discipling students and pointing them to Jesus.
